We forget this, or sometimes don't take it into account at all - for instance we can be often so focused on losing weight as quickly as possible using calorie restrictive crash course diets that we forget as soon as we stop and try to eat normally again we'll gain all, if not more, of the weight back.
The key to achieving results as a beginner is to get right back to basics. These simple (and quick) home workouts do just that. But remember, basic doesn't have to mean easy! Here is a circuit of five exercises that works all areas of the body and doesn't require equipment or a gym membership, it can be also be completed in the comfort of your own home.
It's not too late for you to build a pair of sexy summertime legs! And yes it's mainly because, although late June, it doesn't seem that British summer has started yet. But whilst we patiently wait let's all do something useful and get to work shaping up our bodies ready to bare all on those upcoming 2.5 days of hot sun!
In last week's post, I alluded to the fact that I had signed up to do a 10k run. In fact, I more than alluded to it - I outright stated it. And I'm ashamed to say that it wasn't strictly true. In fact, what I had done is challenge the editor of a well-known running magazine to a race. I mean, you can probably see the flawed logic already.
Take a look in any mainstream gym, and you'll find the most popular exercise at any given time to be the bicep curl. It's the exercise of choice for insecure guys trying to blow up their arms. And whilst bicep curls do have their place, it's definitely not the most important exercise if you want bigger arms.
This is probably the question I got asked the most. In this day and age everyone has a basic understanding about the importance and need to take some regular exercise. However if this involves more than walking the dog then there is stuff to know and learn IF you want to do things properly and get benefit.
